I have had my stealth Pro heater since the fall and I haven't had any problems with it. Should I still take it back? I think I bought it from Petco as well.

Well- the recall covers ALL o them because it is a big enough problem/risk. According to the recall info, there have been fires, blown aquariums, and personal injury.

So- ignore the recall at your own risk (folly?)

Ok- I'm looking for updates. Anyone actually received a check or replacement heater from Marineland?

According to tracking info, they got my Stealth Pro back just over 3 weeks ago, but still no check.

This thread dead? Has anyone received a refund? Called the other day and they said "your check is in the mail". The amount seems disappointing at just over $24. And this is including the over $8 we had to pay to send the heater in to them (after FedEx failed to even try to pick up the box). Seems the StelthPro was somewhere North of $24 when purchased and I used it for just over 3 months...

My local Petco finally put a notice up a few days ago about the recall. 2 weeks ago they were still selling them at a 50%(?) discount and I wondered if anybody was still buying them :P.

Maybe I should give Petco a call, I have 4 of them, but they are 50w, 100w and 250w. From what I read the other day, only the 50w is included in the recall. Anyone heard anything different?

The sign at my Petco listed the 50w on up to the 250w (biggest ?) as part of the recall.

ALL Marineland Stealth and Stealth Pro heaters are included (except maybe that tiny low-watt one that I still see on shelves of even the businesses with the recall info posted on the the shelf).

It is against Federal Law to sell or attempt to sell items under an official recall!!! In fact, I read somewhere that consumers who find recalled product for sale should contact the Consumer Product Safety Administration!

Ok, thanks! The e-mail I got from Foster and Smith only listed the 50w.

Here is the CPSC recall notice. I just called PetSmart, and they said they would give me a store credit, then I called Petco and they said they hadn't heard anything about it.
